Start with a template for the bunny’s body and head. You can create this yourself or find a template online. Trace the template onto your chosen fabric, which looks like a soft, chenille-type fabric in the image. After tracing, cut out the shapes from the fabric. You will need two pieces for each bunny (front and back).: With the right sides together, sew around the edges leaving a small opening for stuffing. If you’re not sewing, you can use fabric glue, but leave an opening for the stuffing. Turn the fabric right side out through the opening and stuff it with polyester fiberfill or any stuffing of your choice to the desired firmness. Stitch the opening closed by hand or use fabric glue. Create a pom-pom using yarn or buy a pre-made pom-pom. Attach this to the back of the bunny for the tail. For the ears, cut out the ear shapes from fabric, making them with an insert of a contrasting color if desired. Make sure to include a seam allowance. Sew or glue the edges, turn right-side out, and attach to the head. Embellish with ribbons, fake flowers, beads, or any other decorative items to give personality, as seen in the image.
- If the bunnies need to stand up, consider adding a weighted material inside the bottom or attaching a stand to the back.
These steps should give you a general idea to start creating your decorative fabric bunnies similar to the ones in the image.

Start by making or finding a bunny pattern. You would need patterns for the body, ears, arms, legs, and an egg shape to hold. Use the pattern to cut the burlap fabric into the required shapes. You’ll need two pieces for each part (front and back). Sew the two pieces of each part together, leaving a small opening. For finer control, you might want to do this by hand, although a sewing machine can work as well. Stuff each part with a filling of your choice, such as polyester fiberfill, to give it shape. Once all parts are stuffed, sew them together at the openings. Attach the ears to the head, the arms to the sides, and the legs to the bottom. For facial features, use buttons or beads for the eyes, and either stitch or glue on a small piece of burlap for the nose. Use jute twine or similar material to create the whiskers and mouth. To finish, you can add a small burlap bow around the neck and place a small egg (which can be made of burlap or any other material) in the bunny’s arms.
Remember, when working with burlap, it’s advisable to work in a well-ventilated area as the fibers can be quite dusty, and it’s also best to prevent fraying by either sewing close to the edge or using a fray-preventative solution on the cut edges
Burlap Bunny Craft
image source :Erika Creations
Start by creating two spheres of different sizes from twine or yarn. You can either wrap the twine around a balloon or create a tight ball of twine glued together with fabric glue. Cut out ear shapes from burlap fabric. You might want to stiffen the burlap with some glue or interfacing to help them stand up. Attach them to the larger twine ball, which will be the body. Create smaller twine balls and attach them to the bottom of the larger twine ball for feet, and a small one for the tail. Attach googly eyes, a small pom-pom or felt piece for the nose, and use thin twine or string to create whiskers. Add a small bow or ribbon around the ears to give your bunny character. You can also add small details like felt or button for the paws. Glue the head to the body, attach the ears to the top of the head, and then add the feet to the bottom of the body. Finish by attaching the tail at the back. Remember, while making this craft, it’s important to let the glue dry completely at each stage before moving on to the next. This will help ensure that your bunny maintains its shape and that all the parts stay securely attached.
Fabric Bunny Jars

Wrap the jar with a fabric of your choice. Secure it with glue, and then decorate it with ribbons or lace to give it a nice finish. Cut out the fabric pieces for the bunny’s ears, arms, and feet. Polka dot fabric is used for the inner ears and the foot pads in the image. Sew the fabric pieces right sides together, leaving an opening for stuffing. Turn the fabric right side out and stuff the pieces with polyester fiberfill. Create the bunny’s face using smaller pieces of white and pink fabric for the nose, and embroider or draw on the eyes and mouth. Fluffy material can be used to mimic fur. Stitch the ears to the top of the head and attach the head to the jar lid. Then, attach the arms and feet to the body of the jar. You can add additional details like a small bow tie or a ribbon around the neck, and whiskers made from thin wire or thread. The result is a decorative bunny jar that can be used for storing small items or as a cute addition to Easter decor. Remember to sew carefully, and make sure all parts are securely attached to ensure the longevity of the craft.

Create or find a pattern for a bunny shape that includes a round body, long ears, and a base that can be filled to add weight. Choose fabrics with different textures or patterns for the body and ears. Cut the fabric according to the pattern. Sew the body parts right sides together, leaving a hole for stuffing. Turn the fabric right side out and stuff the upper part with polyester stuffing. Use sand or small beans to fill the bottom part to add weight, then sew the opening closed. Sew the ear’s right sides together, leaving a base open. Turn them right side out, and if you want them to stand up as in the photo, you can insert a piece of wire or stiff interfacing. Attach the ears to the top of the bunny’s head by sewing or using fabric glue. Sew or glue on small pieces of fabric or felt for the eyes and nose, and use embroidery or fabric paint to create the mouth and whiskers. Add a decorative bow around the neck or ears for a festive look. Be sure to securely attach all parts, especially if the bunny will be used as a toy. For a standing bunny like the one in the picture, ensure the base is stable and the ears are stiff enough to stand upright.
